Your profile can be updated until 10 August. Then, the material will be made accessible to the recruiters to schedule interviews with the candidates that interest them.

Tips

You will have precisely 15 minutes at the Fair to present your Job Market paper. A 5-minute Q&As will follow.

It is important to use those 15 minutes effectively. Here are some tips to be most successful:

  1. Arrive on time, 5 minutes before your session schedule. Between each presentation, there will be a 5 minute break. Introduce yourself to the moderator.
  2. The moderator is instructed to keep each session on time and will signal you towards the end of your presentation to say how much time you have left.
  3. Prepare slides: about 8 slides should be used, max. 10. Have your slides checked by someone to avoid any mistakes!
  4. If you present tabled results, use a clear lay-out and letter type large enough to ensure that audience in the back of the room can still comfortably read your slides.
  5. Your presentation is a “research question and findings” presentation. However, do not direct your presentation at specialists. Keep it simple and assume that the audience knows about your specific research area only in general terms.
  6. Be concise and to the point! You can surprisingly say a lot in 15 minutes if you do not go into details. Here is how you can structure your presentation:
    • introduce briefly yourself and your career plan;
    • introduce your research question;
    • briefly discuss existing answers in the literature;
    • describe your findings/answers;
    • explain your research method (and data (sources) used when relevant).
    • conclude by highlighting your contribution to the research literature in your area.
  7. Rehearse as much as possible, in front of an audience. You will then feel more at ease on the big day. If you exceed your time, make some changes.
  8. Please note that there will be 5 minutes dedicated to Q&As. This will allow the recruiters to better understand your work and career plans.
